Six Degrees of Separation
The braids form a set of six number sequences. It is not only numbers I find fascinating but also the spaces between them (the degrees of separation).The braids show the first sixty numbers of each sequence. Why sixty? … because sixty is a number of many parts. It’s known as the “ace of divisibility”. The braids were woven on an Inkle loom and the cords, that hold the braids in place on the cardboard tubes, with a Lucet.
Materials: silk thread, cardboard tubes, grey board, paper
The distances between the sixty random numbers are also random (1-15 picks per gap) and there are sixty coloured dots, a random mix of red, yellow and blue, attached at random intervals along the length of the braid.
